    1. 4.5 stars, rounded upI read this book in response to one of the prompts for the AAR Days of the Week Reading Challenge, which was for Wednesday -Read an epistolary novel, or a book where letters, phone, text or email messages are relevant to the story.I like epistolary novels in general – I’ve read several classics like Fanny Burney’s Evelina or Laclos’ Les Liaisons Dangereuses, but I haven’t read too many when it comes to more recently written titles, so this was a prompt I was keen t [...]



    2. I am sincerely doing my best at trying to avoid spoilers so I will tell you the best part of TILL NEXT WE MEET: the letters. I found some wonderfully-written correspondence with deep emotional thoughts that travelled between a recently married lady and the man she thought was her husband. Catherine Dunnan was barely married a month when her husband left her to serve in a war on another continent. The historical romance started off with this misunderstanding but because the reader knew it from th [...]


    3. 4.5 Stars. This was an heartfelt and emotional read. This is a story where the heroine and hero fall in love through letters, and I am a fan of the theme. Maybe it's because so many romances' conflict comes in the form of a lack of communication, but the letters theme is one way for open communication. When well done, you get beautifully-worded sentences that are exchanged between the main characters. Ranney certainly delivers on that front. Moncrief is a colonel in Canada during the 1760s, and [...]


    4. After The Lass Wore Black (5 stars easy peasy for me) I wrote: Have read review summaries of this and I will hold off until I've forgotten the first KR novel I just read and loved. The premises seem to have too many similarities, even though I'm sure the H/h are different. Still, the hero here saves/falls in love with a weak/sick/addicted/wounded woman who is the target of a murderer's plot. Authors doing the same thing BUG me. That said, or ranted, KR is a wonderful storyteller and once TLWB ha [...]


    5. When my friend Moss puts an HR book on her "clutched-to-my-bosom" shelf, attention must be paid. And so, I enthusiastically turned to this inspired-by-Cyrano book, even though I had not before heard of the author.Catherine Dunnan pines away at her Scots estate for her husband of one month Harry, who is fighting the wars in North America (the French and Indian War as it's called in the U.S.). Harry is a bounder in every way, and he cruelly ignores the heartfelt letters she constantly sends. Harry [...]


    6. A truly touching love story.I loved the hero, Moncrief! He was such a fantastic man! He's not totally alpha, he has no caveman tendencies, but he's still deliciously commanding! But he's also very tender and very honorable! Loved, loved him!!!Also the heroine, Kate, was great! She started like a grief stricken woman: she was suffering the death of her love. That he was not her love was beside the point. That I'll discover only later on. I didn't liked how much self-destructive her grief was, but [...]


    7. Hay temas que quedan en mi opinión, demasiado rápidamente resueltos (vamos, que en dos hojas soluciona toda la intriga), pero en general, la historia entre ellos es muy bonita.De esos libros en los que lo importante es la evolución de los sentimientos y de la relación entre ambosUna grata sorpresa


    8. 4.5/5. Another beautifully written book by this author. A wonderful tale of how a woman's darkest days of heartbreak, melancholy and isolation can be slowly banished by one man's single-minded application of patience, devotion and passion.


    9. Till Next We Meet is a beautiful Scottish historical romance with a Cyrano twist. The two main characters are excellent - by themselves and for each other - and interestingly complex; their romance is really one that slowly builds, making it completely believable and that much more precious - and the chemistry between the two is fantastic ;-). There were also a few well-executed plot twists and I only really guessed - or rather suspected - one of them before it was revealed, which was a nice cha [...]


    10. You know the song Dust to Dust by The Civil Wars? This book kind of captures that song, for both the hero and heroine. You're like a mirror, reflecting meTakes one to know one, so take it from meYou've been lonelyYou've been lonely too longWe've been lonelyWe've been lonely too longThis was kind of a reverse Love in the Afternoon (by Lisa Kleypas) situation. Catherine Dunnan is in Scotland and she writes to her husband who is off fighting a war in Quebec except she's not. Because her husband is [...]


    11. In love with each word of this book! Beautifully written, full of emotion , gripping plot & deep characters. Catherine fall deeply in love with her husband through their letters exchange. of his death shattered her world. Moncrief-the Duke who did the sin on writing behalf of Henry(her husband-a very bad man) went to have just one look of her. Her pathetic condition & his honor (well his heart too) made him marry her. And the delicious war of confusing emotions began.  How do I battle a [...]


    12. En realidad, no le he podido continuar, así que le he dejado por imposible por ahora.Y mira que me da rabia, porque nunca he dejado ninguno sin terminar! No sé si es que no he logrado conectar con la historia o que la verdadera aventura empieza más adelante y la primera parte es más "lineal" por así decirlo, pero lo cierto es que ha habido momentos en el libro que me han chocado muchísimo y que han hecho que no vea el libro con muchas ganas. Es posible que la culpa sea mía, porque hay muc [...]


    13. 4.5 stars.Love love love this book! Love the story and the characters. Love the letters, written or the ones that Moncrief wrote in his head. The longing was heartbreaking but the love scenes were scorching! A great read for me!


    14. Sweet story. Moncrief is such a wonderful hero. All power outside and all love and tenderness within. Catherine lost her husband to the war and her grief was so intense her life was hanging by a thread and she was getting addicted to laudanum.Moncrief was her husband’s captain during the war and had written her some letters on his behalf and got intrigued by the intelligent and sensible woman who wrote to a womanizer, scoundrel and dishonorable husband who could not even bother to write her ba [...]


    15. I'm often intrigued by stories with love letters as a key plot point--most likely because I think most of modern society has forgotten what love letters really are. This book was full of great love letters. Our hero starts writing letters to our heroine because her scumbag husband wouldn't write them (hero is the scumbag husbands commanding officer in the army). Then scumbag husband dies. Our hero visits our heroine to offer his condolences, but we all know it's because he really wanted to know [...]


    16. I have to say when this book first started I was not really sure how I was going to feel about it. However, I stuck with it and I am glad that I did. Yes there were part where I wanted to shoot Adam Moncrief, and his spur of the moment wife Catherine Dunnan who Adam feel in love with thru letter (sound like another story, HAHA), However, Catherine is already married and Adam is the husband's commander. Catherine's husband is a jerk no way around and then when he dies and Adam come to meet Cather [...]


    17. Okay, sois book, seriously, I'm so befuddled as to my overall reaction. Yea? Nah? Maybe? Perchance a little of it all?Looking back over my book updates while reading this novel, it strikes me that I had more negative to say about this story, than positive. This is odd to be, because realistically, this book didn't bring a wrathful hatred to my reading mind. There were definitely some serious issues within, but not all was for not. The writing style, in general, was very well done. From both an h [...]


    18. This book was Sandra Brown's 'Above and Beyond' done in Georgian-era Scotland AND done better.In Sandra's book, decent guy married to lovely lady and stationed overseas gets killed, and his friend ends up with her letters to her husband, falls in love with her by way of them, and comes back stateside to find and woo her. Only he's a total cad that she's read about and loathes, so he doesn't tell her who he is or how he's fallen for her, and it all explodes into pain and angst at the end, which w [...]


    19. I really didn't care for Catherine for a big part of the book. She is behaving like an idiot and a stubborn know-it-all. Losing someone can surely make you feel like the world should stop and she behaves as if it really has for at least half a year. We get it, you're devastated, you lost the love of your life (or so you think) and it sucks, but wasting six months of your life lying in bed drugged and bemoaning your fate can't possibly be helping you!I figured out Glynneth's secret almost as soon [...]


    20. Heartache, heat, and the healing power of love. I should be shot for that string of triteness, but it's meant as a compliment. When I think of Karen Ranney, this is the book I remember vividly. There's a lot more angst than I'm usually comfortable with, and I didn't expect to fall so completely for a romance with a deception as its premise, even a deception with the best of intentions. But I did fall, hard. I fell in love with the hero, ached for the heroine in her grief, and wanted their HEA so [...]


    21. I now officially adore Ranney's work, the love that transpires between Catherine and Moncrief is absolutely beautiful. Although the novel starts off with the hero already half in love (and subconsciously head over heels) with the heroine he readily admits that he does love the widow soon after their hasty marriage. Moncrief unfailingly devotes himself to Catherine until she realizes that she was grieving for the wrong man and that the man she thought had died is "very much real" and alive. Stunn [...]


    22. I was quite excited when i read the book's cover page. It reminded me a lot of Lisa Kleypas's "Love in the Afternoon" But this book was a bit slow for me. The story doesn't kick up too soon, and becomes a bit dragging. I guess, the idea of the story was really great, but there was something wrong with the execution. But, whatever, the book is still a good read, just make sure you read it before Love in the Afternoon, or you'll be expecting too much


    23. This was such a boring book. This is 350+ page book and nothing actually happens until at least the last 30 pages. The remainder of the book is just pages and pages droning on and on and on about descriptions of rooms and the heroine's endless whining and woes about mourning her deceased husband. I skipped more pages than I actually read. What a complete bore.


    24. I love letter-writing in a romance, and it was really well done here. Till Next We Meet had the thoughtful, three-dimensional, flawed characters that I expect from a Karen Ranney novel. The writing seemed a bit uneven and abrupt at some places, but still worth reading.



    25. Loved this book!!!!! Set in Scotland, with a nod to the Fort in Quebec characters and character development. Great book!!!


    26. Likable characters, a sweet romance, but did not push my buttons. Maybe it was because the great misunderstanding (romantic conflict) dragged on far too long.


    27. I hesitate to add this to my epistolary list here on . For, while it does feature letters, they are not used in a way that helps the novel give depth to the relationship between Moncrief and Catherine. They both, in turn, recollect or reread the letters they've written to each other, but we never really get to see the dialogue develop between them. We get snippets of it and it's rather unsatisfactory. The emotional weight that I love is never there. It's a waste.Despite what I view as a misstep [...]


    28. Ne ho letti due terzi, ma di finirlo non ne ho voglia. Lui è un commilitone del marito di Lei, marito che è un farabutto e nemmeno risponde alle sue lettere. Quindi Lui scrive a Lei in sua vece, fingendosi il marito. La corrispondenza riscalda il cuore di entrambi. Il marito di Lei muore e Lui va da Lei per comunicarle la triste notizia. La trova quasi in fin di vita. Fino a qui, la quarta ce lo racconta già. Ora mi addentrerò nella trama e quindi farò degli SPOILER. Lui non si svela, per n [...]
